If the decals don’t work out for you…

I purchased a new assembly of numbers when I refurbished the speedo head on my ‘46. It’s held immobile at all zeros with a plastic clip which you pull out AFTER you install the new assembly. If you remove the plastic clip before the assembly is securely in the head, you spend the rest of your life getting it reset back to all zeros (don’t ask how I know that).

I’m of average mechanical skill and am very pleased with the results.

I posted free templates for printing these decals on waterslide decal paper. Here's a link: https://tinyurl.com/yc54nsua
Man it would be nice if we had Tech Tips or some sort of repository for stuff like this. The last odometer I re-did looks just like new.

That unit is for the 1937-1939 & 1947-1954 Odometer. JC says this will not work in 1940-1946 trucks.
